Also of interest: In issues #115-118, Gene Colan begins his long-running stint as a Cap artist. I really would never have picked him to be a good fit with Cap, but he does nice work here–and it helps transition the book once again. Under Lee/Kirby, it was an adventure book. Under Lee/Steranko, it was spy stories. Now, with Colan, we get a mix of the two: Weird, trippy art and action-based stories.
Falcon is a prisoner on an island in Haiti (when Cap meets him he says: “You sound more Harlem than Haiti”), where Steve Rogers is sent while Red Skull has hijacked his body. That’s right: Skull used the Cosmic Cube to do a body switch.
